pending on the button situation (ie if they're on or not) I think they maybe from studying the piccie but anyways if there are (buttons that is) then we'll only be using our zelts if it rains of for an extra layer, your more than welcome to use them for making a basha if suitable, as we'll have one each (2 :lol: )


edited to add, I think I can see buttons but not sure if am just wishfully thinking they are there, but these are the zelts winging their way to me, so you can decide if they may be useful or not :wink:

We'll have the last laugh - all the others bearing a 12 pound smelly canvas effort and we breeze in with a 12 ounce package! (More room for food :P )


You'll also need room for your silk pyjamas and velvet smoking jacket, I presume?

Not many mozzies at IED as there is no real water on site. Plus you'll be camping in quite dense woodland so rain doesn't post a big problem either , hoever you could always use a modern bivi bag hidden away under your zelts .. Biggest issue is make sure you have a warm sleeping bag , the wind chill can be quite strong although not expecting major problems in mid summer .

thanks

well I got a Brit WW2 tent (brown) for only 20 notes, I think if memory serves me right from Sabre Sales. It included the 8 wood pegs (which can be 50p in a camp shop), a mallet (again cost you a fiver I suppose), the 2 poles and tent itself. I've had it up in the folks garden with my neice and nephew playing with it and jobs a gudun-would certainly accomodate another person (at least) more if very friendly :wink:

I'm still going to use my modern khyam tent I'm afraid. I like my creature comforts! I will, however, be draping 2 rather large SS banners over it to conceal it's general oranginess. The funds have run out for the moment as the wife wants to decorate the living room, so zeltbahns will have to wait.
